Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

La Peer Health Systems announces the launch of its new Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence in Los Angeles, California. Dedicated to medical testing and treatment of gastroenterological conditions, such as GERD, Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer – doctors at La Peer’s Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence offer the best diagnostic testing and surgical procedures in the field.

The center’s directors include Dr. Peyton Berookim and Dr. Mark Davidson, and will also house the some of the country’s best gastroenterologists, including Dr. Maurice Elihu, Dr. Payman Khorrami, Dr. Shahab Mehdizadeh, Dr. Arash Ari Nowain, Dr. Farshid Sam Rahbar, Dr. Siamak Tabib, and Dr. Leo Treyzon.

“Our Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence is a leading treatment center for patients suffering from a range of esophageal conditions,” said Dr. Berookim. “Our specialized care will impact the lives of our patients by providing them a standard of care that exceeds that of your average medical center.”

Operated by some of the world’s most highly regarded gastroenterologists and surgeons, the Center will offer advanced techniques like the endoscopic radiofrequency ablation therapy (RFA) with the HALO System. Known for its high standard in patient care, leading medical interventions including minimally invasive techniques, and state-of-the-art facilities, La Peer Health Systems has built a reputation as the gold standard in surgical centers.

Beyond its reputation for providing exceptional care, the Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence is also concerned about the rapid increase in esophageal cancer cases and is devoted to supporting and bringing awareness to the need for more effective tools to detect and treat the disease. Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest increasing cancer diagnoses in the United States. In an effort to further its cause, the Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence will donate a portion of its proceeds to the Esophageal Cancer Action Network (ECAN), a non-profit organization dedicated to working for increased funding for medical research to battle Esophageal Cancer.

“We want to encourage patients to receive medical care regularly in order to detect conditions early because more treatment options may be available,” said Dr. Davidson.
